I suffered from migraines and neck pain for years. Dr. Lee was the first doctor who actually listened and after a few appointments I was pain free. He is amazing.

Dr. Lee is very friendly and thorough. He listens to your concerns carefully and describes a plan of action to help mitigate and relieve the patients issues. I received Acupuncture therapy for the first time here and it was a very relaxing and effective experience. I definitely recommend Dr. Lee!

I went to Dr. Lee primarily for therapy for Bell’s Palsey but he ended up also treating my arthritis and shoulder problem. He has been using a combination of acupuncture, alignment and lidocaine for treatment. My shoulder pain was gone by the second treatment and I saw marked improvement of the Bell’s Palsey as well. Even my arthritis is less problematic and movement is less painful. Highly recommend Dr. Lee!!

I have suffered from mechanical back failure since Marine Corps boot camp. It's a nagging condition where I experience lower back pain and tightness after extended exertion. Several friends of mine see Dr Lee, so I decided to give him a shot . He had me lay on the treatment table, and after less than 15 minutes of treatment, I was pain free and have had no trouble for over a week now. The nav is amazing

Dr. Lee is a caring and knowledgeable physician -- a true healer in all respects. He has helped me so much with my neck and back pain. His expertise, compassion, and good-natured personality makes you feel comfortable and at ease. He takes the time to listen and meaningfully engage with you in order to have a better understanding of your medical condition. Dr. Lee provides an extremely high level of care. He is calm, attentive, and thorough. He communicates with his patients and answers questions in a thoughtful and clear manner. Although his full practice keeps the office quite busy, Dr. Lee manages to tend to all his patients with efficiency and competency, moving swiftly, yet addressing all his patients' concerns. He is down to earth and gives great advice about how to take care of yourself both physically and mentally. His holistic approach to medicine ensures that you are well-informed about how your overall lifestyle affects your health. Dr. Lee does not just treat the symptoms, he treats the patient as a whole. He is professional, warm, and genuinely concerned about his patients' well-being.
